Even though Tony Bennett has sketched her naked, he still hasn't seen enough of Lady Gaga.

The 86-year-old singing legend revealed he and Mother Monster are going to make an entire jazz album together—and it was her idea. "She called me from New Zealand and said, 'I want to do a jazz album with you,'" Bennett told Rolling Stone. "And I said, 'You got it!'" (Note to self: Call up Tony Bennett and ask him to record an album with me).

"A lot of people don't know it, but she's a phenomenal jazz singer," Bennett said. Having actually watched her TV Thanksgiving special, I can confirm she actually does sound pretty great crooning the classics. 

As long as the album cover is a John and Yoko-esque nude portrait of them together, I'm on board.
